good, well organised budget liveaboard

The pre-breakfast dive at Elephant Head Rock was superlative and particularly memorable. This was an excellent liveaboard trip - my fourth at the Similans - and good value for including 11 dives over 3 days/3nights. The food was plentiful and good, with tasty snacks continually appearing outside of meal times. The boat boys were efficient - and necessary - in safely getting us in and out of the water. Dive staff/instructors were friendly, organised and professional. Kh. Noon was a great and lovely group leader. The boat was perhaps not big enough to comfortably host 22 guests but the space was well managed and it is only this packing efficiency that allows such a reasonable tour price of course...

Great Snorkeling

They were helpful in pointing out the best areas to go snorkeling. Although the main focus is on diving, the trip was very snorkeling friendly as advertised.

Amazing experience with friendly instructors and crews

Good food, good people and great sceneries & diving sites. It was just an amazing experience. But as a person from non-tip country, I prefer when the total price that I pay before the trip is inclusive of all the tips.
